Dialysis: a Memoir tells the story of how kidney failure changed my life. The memoir describes my experience: what it was like when I was first hospitalized, what I went through on hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, and finally how my husband donated his kidney to me. The memoir explores the emotional and physical complexities of living a life dependent on medicine and discusses how I learned to navigate the terrain of my changed circumstances following the transplant. I have a web site for my memoir here.
